~ MORE ENMUZZLING? So what’s the deal? Is AppleCorp helping YouTube muzzle the masses?
In the latest iOS update on the iPad (bought in loving memory of my techie Dad), something went missing which had been there in every single previous operating system I’d used on it. The Youtube “Share With FaceBook” button in the Apple iPad YouTube App. No, seriously.
As all of you who follow Teh Bink’s every word, deed, thought, and passing whim will know, in the cool of the evenings whilst I rest on the fainting couch, I was in the habit of posting a few, nay, even a half-dozen YouTube videos I found interesting, topical, or cool via the iPad.
Then comes the latest update. No button.
Shut Up, They Explained
Sharing awkward information is one of the things the controlling elites hate about social media; GoogleTube is working on hiding news on Las Vegas, Twitter is punishing people by bannings and the like. The news & views sorting-algorithms all tilt hard to the left. The great silencing may be approaching. Only kitty-pictures, fake news, and bad jokes in the new Utopia.
Not saying it’s a conspiracy, but such ‘accidental’ censorship is damned weird, and makes no sense. It’s also really inconvenient for people who use Apple for stuff… maybe it’s time for a mini-laptop, where Goog-Apple-Twit-Tube can’t block me from sharing videos– yet.
Or, it could just be more digital global wars… is Google pressing Apple to slight FaceBook, via limiting YouTube on iPads? Might well be.
Anyone else noticed this new ‘feature’?
